Iqbal Abdullah

In my day job I run Xoxzo Inc. which provides a simple web API platform for telephony services. I am a business founder, a software engineer, founder and co-founders of PyCon JP and PyCon MY.

I am originally from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and has been a resident of Japan since 1997. I graduated from the Engineering Faculty, Saga University. I am currently residing in Nerima-ku, Tokyo.

I use git, practice design patterns and unit tests heavily.

Previously I worked for Yahoo Japan, Inc. as a software engineer and Amazon Japan as a marketing manager.

I believe in

  • globalisation
  • capitalism
  • the ability of humans to think and work together for a common goal
  • differences of opinions
  • one way of writing code in python
  • reading as a substitute to travelling
  • the inherent responsibility of humans to do good for this world
  • art as a filter to our consciousness
  • giving and contributing back
  • and sometimes all that I believe in above doesn't work out well so I need to figure something else out.
